Our Patients' Health Comes First

At Cadence Health, our philosophy about healthcare is simple. We provide medically-necessary healthcare to everyone, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.  If you are uninsured, underinsured or are likely to face a large self-pay responsibility, Cadence Health has a variety of financial assistance programs designed to help.

Free Care Program* provides medically-necessary care free-of-charge to those individuals at or below 300% of the federal poverty level. 

Discounted Care Program* provides generous discounts to individuals at or below 600% of the federal poverty level.

Catastrophic Discount Program provides assistance to patients who may not qualify for other financial assistance programs, but are experiencing a significant financial burden due to the occurrence of a catastrophic medical event.  This program limits the total out-of-pocket costs the patient would be responsible for.

Payment Plan Program provides payment options to patients who may be unable to pay their balance in full at one time.  

*Please refer to the Federal Poverty Level Guide (English/Spanish) for general information. This is a guide only and does not determine eligibility.  Family size, income and other related criteria are used to ultimately determine eligibility.

How to Apply

Specific eligibility requirements for the above programs do vary. In order to determine eligibility, a financial assistance application must be completed, along with all required supporting documentation. 

Because we know it can be difficult to understand all the details associated with your various options, we are here to help. Cadence Health has financial counselors available to guide you through the application process. A financial counselor can also help direct patients to other potential coverage methods such as Medicaid or KidCare.
